Documents and Notices


Pursuant to Title 49, United States Code, §47106(c)(1)(A), notice is hereby given that the County of San Luis Obispo (County), and in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), intends to complete six airfield pavement and facility improvements (the Proposed Action), at the Oceano County Airport (Airport). The proposed improvements are concentrated along the length of Runway 11-29 and the parallel taxiways. The Proposed Action includes:

  • Widen Runway 11-29 from 50 to 60 feet;
  • Widen Taxiways A, A-1, A-2, A-3, and A-4 from 20 to 25 feet;
  • Relocate segmented circle and wind cone;
  • Install taxiway edge lighting;
  • Install hold position signage; and
  • Install a new electrical vault and electrical connections.

These improvements would encroach upon a regulated (100-year) floodplain. The impact on the floodplain would not significantly diminish natural and beneficial floodplain values present at the Airport including moderation of floods, water quality maintenance, and fish, wildlife, and plant habitat found on the Airport.

A Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) identifying the economic, social, and environmental impacts of the Proposed Action has been prepared. Pursuant to FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, and Executive Order 11990, Protection of Wetlands, notice is given that the Proposed Action would result in filling 0.02 acres of wetlands. The potential impacts and proposed mitigation are presented in the Draft EA.

The Draft EA will be available for public review for a 30-day period beginning April 26, 2021either using the link below or at the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Airports (975 Airport Drive, Suite 1, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401).

Written comments on the information presented in the Draft EA should be sent electronically to staff@sloairport.com or via U.S. mail to Craig Piper, Deputy Director, 975 Airport Drive, Suite 1, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. Comments must be received no later than 5:00pm Pacific Daylight Time on May 27, 2021. Please allow enough time for mailing. San Luis Obispo County must receive your comments by the deadline, not simply postmarked, by that date.

Be advised that all comments received, including personal identifying information may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

If requested, a Public Hearing to review the project and provide comments will be granted in conjunction with FAA policy and floodplain review. If you would like to request a Public Hearing, please contact Craig Piper, Deputy Director, by phone at 805.781.5205 or by email at staff@sloairport.com by 5:00pm Pacific Daylight Time on May 27, 2021. Comments on the Draft EA will be addressed, as appropriate, in the Final EA. The Final EA will be made available on this page when complete.
